In Peru there is a spot that the wave breaks for a mile or more, as it rounds a point. Surfers are literally miles from where they started.

It sounds like these guys are offering rides back to the start of the wave... it sounds like a good business idea.
Hola Squish

Yes, you are right, the surf site you are mentioning is called Chicama, near Trujillo city and these surf towing sibs service ais being offered by Chicama Surf Resort Hotel for their guests. Now you can surf a lot more with cheap water transportation, my company has sold the sibs and engines and trained the sib captains for correct & prudent tow service to clients. If any surfer is interested on a new excellent surf destination check:

The idea to change sibs for ribs is because there is too much sand abrasion on the side joinners, floors, against tubes etc because of too much water/sand comming in, even though the sibs are washed daily after use. I plainly agree with Paulmac that ribs are excellent surf tow boats, have my vote. Cheers too!

Happy Boating
